However, latest data from the Office for National Statistics showed that Covid cases in general have continued to decrease in England, Wales and Scotland – with the trend “uncertain” for the most recent week in Northern Ireland.

In the week ending July 26, there were 2.58 million cases recorded in the UK.

This was down from 3.2 million in the week up to July 20, and 3.8 million the week before.
